Summary: Had issues understanding the words being spoken on my older, inexpensive center. This proved to be a night and day difference. Bought this, 4 matched bookshelf and 2 rear in-wall speakers. Life is good.
Summary: Paired with rti a9s and rti a1 this center channel works well. The timbre match of the series is really a nice thing to have. I have mine powered with an emotiva 250 watt amp. The higher wattage is in my opinion is needed to make these speakers come alive.
Summary: This speaker works perfectly with my Polk RTi-A9 towers for the front 3 in a 7.1 system. I am powering those and four TL-2 satellites as front heights and surrounds with a Pioneer VSX-1123-K at 90 watts per channel. It sounds nice and clean, with the CSi-A6 anchoring the dialog.

Summary: This replaced a vintage Polk Audio CS 350 LS. I was told by Polk techs that if I wanted to continue to use my CS 350 Ls speaker I would have to purchase the Polk Lsim 703 for "timber matching" speakers. I didn't want to spend $1200-1400 on a pair of bookshelf speakers.
Summary: Definitely better sound than my CS10. I can tell a difference mostly in male voices. Doesn't sound muddy like the CS10. Crystal clear sound. Female voices sound like they're in the room with you. Worth the money. Using a Yahama 5.1 receiver and Polk Series 2 Towers and Satelites
Summary: Sounds and looks great. I use it with other RTI Polk speakers A9, A3. Movie and TV dialogue are now a new found enjoyment compared to just the speakers on the TV or having just my big fronts take on the duty of dialogue. I would recommend.
Summary: Simply put, these are a great match with all the ATi series speakers. Put some power on them, and you'll enjoy clean, clear sound that blends seamlessly with your other Polk speakers. A must for the home theater...
